What Aesthetic Concerns Can Be Addressed with Liposuction?

Liposuction is sought for various reasons, often linked to factors like age, genetics, and lifestyle. While diet and exercise play a vital role in overall fitness, certain areas may resist efforts due to genetics or aging. People commonly seek liposuction to address:

Stubborn Fat Deposits

Despite healthy habits, localized fat pockets can persist in certain areas.

Genetic Predisposition

Genetics can determine fat distribution, making certain areas more prone to accumulation.


As individuals age, metabolism can slow, contributing to fat storage in specific regions.

Post-Pregnancy Changes

Women may opt for liposuction to address lingering post-pregnancy fat.

Enhancing Body Contours

Liposuction helps sculpt and refine body proportions for a balanced appearance.

Is Liposuction Considered a Major Surgery?

The answer to this depends on how much liposuction you get. The duration of a typical liposuction procedure can vary based on the specific areas treated and the extent of fat removal, but it generally ranges from 1 to 3 hours. 

After anesthesia is administered, Dr. Bolitho makes small, discreet incisions.

 Following the delivery of sterile solution to the incision sites, a cannula is placed inside and moved around. This movement releases excess fat and prepares it to be drawn out through a medical suction device. Most patients can resume light activities within a few days to a week after liposuction, gradually returning to normal routines over the following weeks.

Surgical Candidates

Liposuction is a suitable option for individuals who meet certain criteria, ensuring safe and effective results. Ideal candidates typically possess the following attributes:

  • Good General Health: Candidates should be in good overall health, free from any conditions that might impair healing.
  • Non-Smoker: Non-smokers experience reduced risks during surgery and optimal healing afterward.
  • Maintain Stable Weight: Candidates should have a stable and healthy weight, as liposuction is not a weight loss solution.
  • Reasonable Expectations: Those with realistic expectations about the procedure's outcomes are more likely to be satisfied.
  • Localized Fat Deposits: Liposuction targets localized fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise.
  • Good Skin Elasticity: Elastic skin allows for better contouring results post-fat removal.
  • Commitment to Healthy Lifestyle: Candidates willing to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine post-surgery for sustained results.

Dr. Bolitho's expertise ensures that potential candidates receive personalized guidance to determine if liposuction aligns with their individual goals and overall well-being.
